This design was a challenge to stitch - the dark linen and all the writing done in 'over one'. I set it aside for a couple of years after starting it, then picked it up again and got it completed (pats herself on the back). It is very pretty and timely as our earliest daffs are now in bloom.
Robins - I now have lots of Robins.
Several in the morning, and over two dozen in the evening. I keep looking, hoping to see a Varied Thrush or two in the mix, but so far no luck. A friend of mine had over six Varied Thrush in her yard, so there is hope.
My yard instead has California Quail.
Lots and loads of quail.
Each morning they fly into the brush, and then stroll out.
Here are a couple of couples!
A female leads the group.
They are being to pair up.
